This magnetic marker board features galvanized metal in a craftsman style wood frame. The metal makes a wonderful writing surface that is easy to erase and will not stain. At 12 inches wide, it fits just about anywhere. The shaker style cuts give this product a rustic / industrial style, while the galvanized metal creates a farmhouse / shabby chic feel. It is handmade in the USA (in our shop). We put keyhole slots in the item so that it is easy to hang and sits flush against the wall.
This species of wood is used most often in cabinetry because of it's beautiful grain, abundance of character, and unrivaled ability to accept a stain while still maintaining a natural appearance.
1. Light Finish (photos 1-2): We apply only a clear coat, highlighting the lighter tones of the wood.
2. Dark Finish (photos 3-5): We apply a darker, walnut colored stain that still preserves the wood's natural character.
